How Women Can Create Ample Opportunity Online
As women, we live in very exciting times. We have so much opportunity to impact our market like never before. The choice is yours how far you will go with this.
In the past, opportunities seemed to be reserved primarily for the guys. Today this is absolutely not so. However, to achieve the most you can you have to be willing to step up and be counted.
A huge part of your success resides in how much visibility you get. Permit me to explain.
Years ago I attended a conference with my sister. To avoid crowds we decided to register the night before the event began. There were a few other people who had the same idea. To say I was surprised when the first person I talked with, a woman from the Midwest, recognized me by my voice, is an understatement. This was the first of many people attending the conference who were either on my list, in one or more of my social networks, had read my articles, or had purchased products.
Over the course of the three-day event I had a similar experience with others attending the conference. The best part of all of this were the invitations I received to be interviewed on radio shows and in written pieces as well as a couple of joint-venture opportunities that came out of these chance meetings. Had I not had the visibility I gained from my online presence, the outcome would have been different.
The more visibility you have, the more the doors open up. It's not uncommon when someone is planning a virtual event to base who they invite as an expert on how well-known the person is. And doesn't this make sense? A well-known expert draws in more viewers and listeners than an unknown.
One client I worked with for some time was pleasantly surprised when she received a call from one of the most influential men in the world of affiliate marketing to speak at his conference. I had worked with Cathy Demers on her market position with the goal of creating opportunities for her to speak at conferences. Obviously her efforts were paying off.
When Cathy arrived at the conference she was greeted by a small group of people who were very familiar with her work due to all she had been doing online. Over the course of the three-day event this became a common occurrence.
It turns out that Cathy's efforts with her Business Success Cafe® were incredibly popular and had positioned her very nicely for her appearance at the conference. Not only was her presentation at the conference a huge success, but several other opportunities opened up as a result including an invitation from the same gentleman to return the following year to present again.
After the first conference, multiple opportunities opened up for Cathy including more business online. She'll be the first to say it was a direct result of her visibility.
The possibilities are endless and ample. The key is taking action.
A few of the actions are to write articles for online directories and trade journals, seek out radio interview opportunities, find guest blogging opportunities and become very visible in targeted social networks.
Avoid buying into the "it happens overnight" syndrome. The fact is as a female entrepreneur you can create a great platform for your message, but it does take time, planning and commitment.
Begin now to move toward the outcome you most desire. I can promise you this, it will be worth it.
